If my proposal is accepted, what is the per diem for speakers?

Speaker benefits depend on the role of the individual and type of session accepted.

  • All faculty are responsible for making their own hotel arrangements.
  • AACC University and Scientific Session Speakers receive economy roundtrip airfare when booked through AACC’s travel agent or compensation for self-driving and a per diem per day for 2 days. Per diem is calculated each year based on the location and is typically $400 USD. Per diem is intended to cover hotel, meals, and ground transportation while attending the meeting. Individuals serving as Speaker on multiple conference days are eligible for one additional day of per diem. Per diem checks are provided onsite. AACC University and Scientific Session Speakers also receive complimentary AACC Annual Scientific Meeting registration.
  • Please note that individuals serving as Moderator only (and not Speaker) do not receive Speaker benefits.
  • Please note that per diem is not provided in the event a Speaker is unable to travel and AMOC permits a live remote presentation
  • Roundtable speakers will receive $50 each day they present.
